The Dark Knight Rises is turning into an Inception reunion. Following news two weeks ago that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks for a role, THR has word that Marion Cotillard may also be joining the film.
Here’s what they have to say:
A rep for the actress in Paris said that her involvement in the film is currently “in discussions, but nothing has been confirmed yet.” WB France has yet to comment.
The actress, who is pregnant and due in the spring, is discussing scheduling issues. The plan is for Cotillard to start shooting mid-June in London, film all summer in L.A. and Pittsburgh and wrap mid-November in New York.
THR goes on to say that Nolan has been “focusing on finding the romantic lead for Christian Bale in recent weeks” and has been “meeting with several actresses, including Kate Winslet, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts”. This seems to back-up what we’ve head previously about Nolan having a female villain (Anne Hathaway as Catwoman) and a love interest.
With filming set to begin in May we should be hearing confirmations soon.
